Assassin’s creed odyssey is a game that is driven through the story, and the stories are driven by the decisions you make. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a pretty big game and you will come across a lot of decisions. Some of them will be complex and hard while some are very easy. If you have decided to finish the game with the best possible ending then you have to make the right decisions. In this Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Choices Guide we have all the major choices and their consequences so that you can decide how to proceed with the game.
1. The Blood Fever Quest
Even though the blood fever is a side quest in the Odyssey, this side quest can affect your ending and future in the game. So this quest is all about the population of Kefalonia. The area is under a disease called blood fever. Now you are left with two choices in the game. The first is to let the villagers leave the area or stop them from leaving the area.
Choice A: Let the Villagers Escape Area
If you let the villagers escape with the disease, surely it will spread and result in infecting the population outside the area which later on can affect the entire country. All the people will be under sickness and disease and death.
Choice B: Prevent Villagers From Escaping the Area
If you choose to stop the villagers from escaping it will be a wise choice; doing this will protect the population of the entire country from being infected Furthermore this choice will lead you to the best ending.
2. The Duris’s debt (Debt Collector)
The next decision that can potentially affect the good ending of the game is Duris’s debt. So the scenario is Duris took debt from a merchant which he fails to pay. Now you are charged to make him pay the debt. Again there are two choices: either you threaten him to pay the debt or forgive him.
Choice A: Threaten or Kill Duris
The first choice is obviously the violence. You will threaten him; break some vases in his house and he will return the debt.
Choice B: Forgive Him and Spare the Debt
The second choice is all about the kindness you show him. Duris will kneel down and beg you for his life and you will argue with the merchant that the double amount is too much. Also, spare the debt. As in the return for the help and kindness, Duris will give a rare and good sword as a gift.
3. To Kill Monger or Spare His Life
The next on the list is whether to Kill Monger or Spare His Life. Both the consequences are gonna please a certain someone. If you will kill Monger it will please Anthousa. However, if you take the matter secretly and spare his life it will please Brasida. Obviously, you can not please both. However, consequences are of importance here.
Choice A: Kill Monger
If you decide to take the life of the monger then surely it will please Anthousa. And you will not gain something important here.
Choice B: Spare his LIfe
However, if you take the matter secretly and decide to spare his life then there are three benefits that you will gain. Firstly you please Barsida. Secondly, you will gain the trust of Monger and in return, he will give you some crucial information about the king which will help you a lot in the game in the future. Lastly, a step closer to the best and good ending.
4. Spare Nikolaos or Kill Him?
This is one the major decisions that will shape your journey and the final ending of the game is whether to Spare your father (Nikolaos) or Kill Him?. You will get this choice at the end of chapter 2 called The Wolf of Sparta. Let’s see what will be the result of both the consequences.
Choice A: Killing Nikolaus
So if out of rage and anger you decide to kill Nikolaus, just know that you will lose all your chances to meet him further in the game. This will result in losing some additional quests including the best ending furthermore you in the future you will also have to kill Nikolaus’s right-hand man Stentor as well. However, the only benefit you will get here is you get a sword and a mediocre spear
Choice B: Sparing Nikolaus
If you decide to let Nikolaus live and keep your anger in control well it will benefit you a lot. As he plays a key role later in the game. Firstly you will be able to get your hands on some unique quests. Secondly and majorly you will not lose the best ending of the game.
5. Ashes to Ashes (Whether to Save the baby or not?)
Once you are inside the temple you will see Chrysis holding a baby in her hands. There will be a short conversation between you and her and then she will set the temple on fire. Here you will have to choose among the two outcomes. You can either save the baby and let Chrysis live for a while or go after Chrysis which results at the end of life for the baby. Both the outcomes have something in return.
Choice A: Save the baby and let Chrysis live
If you make the decision to save the baby, Chrysis will also live for a while. This outcome will open up a new quest for you called Death Comes to Us All. Ultimately this quest will end with the death of Chrysis.
Choice B: Go after Chrysis and let the baby die
In case you take the decision to go after Chrysis, surely you will kill the Chrysis but the baby will also die. The outcome will be that you will get your hands on Legendary Gauntlets of the immortal.
6. Whether to Kill Stentor or not?
As you progress in the game there will be a time when you will be given a chance to kill the stentor or not. But it can affect your happy ending.
Choice A: Kill the Stentor

7. Choices of the small Odyssey
So here you have to take everything with a little more attention. When it comes to small odyssey you will be making a couple of choices. These choices may make her either mad at you or make her happy.
Choice A: Ask small odyssey to grow up
You will ask small odyssey to grow up, encourage her to be an Odysseus. Also, you can call her cute.
Choice B: Encourage small odyssey to be great
Encourage small odyssey to be great. Say that being great is not easy or say that you do not give advice.
So the above choice will result in the following things. Firstly she will not like that you call her cute. Calling her ugly will surely result in great anger towards you.
Also telling her to grow up will also make her mad.
Encouraging her to be odyssey will show her that you care for her. However, if you try to give a lecture on being great she will probably not like it.
If you still persist in telling her what it means to be great and that it’s not that easy. She will leave the conversation for now and chances are that you will continue to converse with her later.
However, if you simply say that you do not give advice she will surely get mad at you and leave you.
8. The Cyclops thugs
